JOLIET, Ill. — Richard Trafton won the Joliet Police Department's highest honor Tuesday, but his greatest satisfaction may have come when Jorga Sheridan thanked him for saving her husband from a knife-wielding assailant.
"You touched the lives of his parents, his children, his siblings and me," Sheridan said during the department's annual awards ceremony.
